|Depends on what I am lifting it for. For instance, if I were lifting to replace the control arms or other suspension parts, I would find a flat frame area. Obviously, you would never use the engine or transmission to lift it. As for not raising using the differential "pumpkin": yes, Ford says not to, but I have no clue why. As a mechanic back in the 70's and 80's, that was standard practice (and I worked at dealerships as well as independent repair shops). My best advice is to just use common sense and don't get yourself killed by carelessness.
BTW, good thread idea, MaXX. :)
